from the factory, the vaccum in the intake pulls the blowby out of the valve cover.
u have nothing pulling, just 2 pressurized ports that are hooked up to a filter

this will work, but i would do a search and read up on it, plenty of times this has been talked about.

The way you have it without the valve. Anyone who tells you to pull vacuum off the motor wants you to fail with detonation. In a daily driver turbo car, you're fine, in a track toy you're going to detonate.

So, do I just remove the valve and route the tube right into the catch can? Should I keep the intake plug capped like I have it now?

yes, the one-way valve is unnecessary. If you're not popping the dipstick out, then don't worry about it.

lulz.......ricer.

Having no idea what the breather/PCV does = fail. They're designed the way they are for a reason.

I know how what the valve does. That's why I want to figure how to make the whole thing work better. I think I have lots of blowby so I added a catch can. Can someone just tell me what's the best set up with a catch can?

Get on a racetrack some time and you'll see that you need more flow than the 1/2" port on the valve cover when in boost.

I just told you how to hook it up 3 ******* times, what is your ******* problem? Run each port to the ******* catch can, and shut the **** up. Please, kill yourself.

Honestly I can't say. I do believe there will be a leak from the manifold hose though. I will let others step in.

Edit: nvm, already did.

So isn't it a problem with a stock set up and a turbo? I mean when there is positive pressure in the intake it is not letting the pcv to open? so the best way would be to get rid of the pcv, run the hose from the left side of the cam cover into the catch can and same with the right side? Whats the best way to get rid of the PCV? Just make a hole in it?

^ you don't want to pressurize the crankcase, it'll blow your rear/main seals. take hustlers advice and make sure to replace the filter when clogged. The only reason to not do it that way is if you're worried about emissions

ok, sprayed, i honestly cant follow anything hustler is saying. I think he thinks he is a gangster and the way he writes it unreadable to me.

which filter are you talking about? the one on the catch can?
